    * Immigration storm could bring her down as coalition partner threatens to resign
    * Mountains have become a route for Africans looking for a new life across border
    * Thousands have made the trek alone wearing clothes unlikely to protect them

    Angela Merkel’s government was on the verge of collapse last night as her interior minister said he was ready to quit over her handling of the migration crisis. Horst Seehofer told allies he was prepared to resign from his cabinet post and role as leader of her coalition partners, the Christian Social Union.


    Mrs Merkel, who has been German chancellor since 2005, is facing intense pressure from the Bavarian sister party to her Christian Democratic Union, who have called for borders to be closed to asylum seekers.

Merkel Coalition on Brink of Collapse Over Migrants

Merkel MUST go!

  • Merkel Coalition on Brink of Collapse Over Migrants
    by David Crossland, Berlin, https://www.thetimes.co.uk/
    Angela Merkel’s coalition government slid deeper into crisis last night as her interior minister offered to resign, dismissing the EU migrant deal reached last week and accusing her of making “zero” concessions in their dispute.

    Horst Seehofer, who also heads the Christian Social Union (CSU), a junior partner in her three-way coalition, told a meeting of party leaders in Munich that the deal would lead to more migration rather than less, and that he could not accept it.

    He said he was ready to quit as minister and CSU chairman after some party members criticised his hard stance, sources said. But others tried to dissuade him and it was unclear after nine hours of talks which way he would go. In a dramatic night that…

What Consent? Hungary, Poland & Czech Republic Deny Sealing Migrant Deal with Merkel

Provider: CartoonArts International / The New York Times Syndicate

  • What Consent? Hungary, Poland & Czech Republic Deny Sealing Migrant Deal with Merkel
    by https://www.rt.com/
    Three EU countries have denied reaching any final agreement with Germany on the return of migrants to the country of entry, despite Angela Merkel’s claim she’d received “political consent” from 14 EU nations to strike such a deal.

    “No such deal has been reached,”
     spokesman for Hungary’s government Zoltan Kovacs said, adding that Budapest has repeatedly rejected German attempts to “return” migrants to their first country of entry into the EU. Similar statements have been produced by Poland and the Czech Republic, which also denied reaching any agreements on the matter.


    “There are no any new agreements regarding the reception of asylum seekers from EU countries, we confirm (that), like the Czech Republic and Hungary,”
     Polish Foreign Ministry spokesman Artur Lompart said.


    Earlier on Saturday, media reported that, during the EU summit, 14 European countries, including some outspoken opponents of German Chancellor’s ‘open door’ policy, had allegedly “consented on a political level” to make a deal on taking migrants back. The document on the deal has been sent by Merkel to her coalition partners, according to Reuters.

    “At the moment, Dublin repatriations from Germany succeed in only 15 percent of cases,”
     the document says, as quoted by Reuters. “We will sign administrative agreements with various member states… to speed the repatriation process and remove obstacles.”

    According to the EU agreement on migrants, known as the Dublin Accord, the country of “first entry”is responsible for accommodating new arrivals. If the applicant moves to another EU state, that state may request the “country of the first entry” to take the applicant back. In practice, the “first entry” provision effectively means that the first country to actually register a migrant becomes ultimately responsible for them. Such practice has caused tensions between the EU members, with Greece and Italy repeatedly accused of pushing migrants deeper into Europe, without registering them. The Dublin Accord was largely suspended, following Merkel’s landmark decision to open borders and welcome all migrants to Germany, made in 2015.

The Israeli military also said it’s sticking to a policy of non-intervention in Syria. Israel has carried out many airstrikes against Syrian forces since the Syria conflict began in 2011. Damascus accuses Tel Aviv of supporting militants fighting to topple the Syrian government.

Israeli Dual Citizen Convicted Of Making Hundreds Of Hoax Bomb Threats Against Jewish Centers

  • Israeli Dual Citizen Convicted Of Making Hundreds Of Hoax Bomb Threats Against Jewish Centers
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    An court in Israel has convicted a 19-year-old American-Israeli man of making hundreds of threats to bomb or otherwise attack Jewish schools and community centers. 

    Michael Ron David Kadar of Southern Israel attempted to conceal his identity to make threatening phone calls and electronic threats to the US, UK, Canada, New Zealand and Australia – forcing evacuations, emergency airplane landings and prompting concern over a surge in anti-Semitism. Kadar was also found guilty of extortion, money laundering and assaulting a police officer. He was arrested in the Israeli town of Ashkelon in March 2017 following a joint investigation by the Israeli and US authorities, including the FBI.

    He was accused of making more than 2,000 bomb threats to Jewish institutions, airlines, airports, police stations, hospitals and sporting events. –BBC

    “As a result of these threats, planes were forced to land in different airports, schools were evacuated and emergency forces were alerted,” said Israeli state prosecutor Yoni Hadad. “He essentially created panic, terrorised many people and disrupted their lives.”

    While the calls reportedly began in 2015, Kadar was only tried for calls he made beginning in 2016 when he turned 18. 

    Several Jewish schools in the UK were targeted in February 2017 – as well as the Jewish Museum in London, which was evacuated due to bomb threats attributed to Kadar. He also made threats towards British Airways flights between New York and London.

    Kadar’s parents have called him a “helpless person” after arguing that a brain tumor which caused autism is to blame, along with other mental problems, and that their son is not competent to stand trial. “The fact that they determined that he was fit to stand trial was a lie and a conspiracy against a helpless person. We have been raising this child for 18 years,” his father said in a Thursday hearing. “He is incapable of telling good from bad. His discretion is horrible. There is a conspiracy here.”

    Judge Zvi Gurfinkel had none of it, rejecting the claim and stating “The defendant changed his version according to his needs. He is well aware of the consequences of his actions. He understands what it means and keeps changing his version according to the convenient defence line.”

Reuters Global Editor Apologizes Over Deleted Tweet Blaming Trump For Capital Gazette Shooting

  • Reuters Global Editor Apologizes Over Deleted Tweet Blaming Trump For Capital Gazette Shooting
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    Reuters Global editor Rob Cox has issued a four-part apology for a now-deleted tweet blaming Donald Trump for Thursday’s Annapolis newsroom shooting which left five dead and two wounded.

    Cox tweeted “This is what happens when @realDonaldTrump calls journalists the enemy of the people. Blood is on your hands, Mr. President. Save your thoughts and prayers for your empty soul.

    Once it became clear that Ramos’ long-standing feud with The Gazette was the motive, Cox deleted his tweet and apologized.

    When I saw the news today that a mass shooter had targeted the employees of a newspaper in Maryland I responded emotionally and inappropriately. Though my comments were entirely personal, they were not in keeping with the Reuters Trust Principles and my own standards for letting facts, not snap judgments, guide my understanding. My experience as a member of the community of Newtown, Connecticut in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook tragedy, combined with the possibility that my colleagues in the press were being targeted, pushed me into a state of emotional distress. I am sorry for my comments, which I quickly deleted and have disavowed, and especially remorseful if they did anything to distract from the thoughts and love we must send to the community of Annapolis.

    As Fox News notes, Reuters touts itself as the “world’s largest international multimedia news provider,” reaching over one billion people on a daily basis. Editor-in-chief Steve Adler issued a statement which reads in part:

2 Killed, 300+ Wounded and Israeli Drone Shot Down in Latest Gaza Clashes

  • 2 Killed, 300+ Wounded and Israeli Drone Shot Down in Latest Gaza Clashes
    by https://www.rt.com/
    Palestinian protesters have shot down an Israeli surveillance drone, amid heavy clashes during the latest weekly Great March of Return protest, in which the IDF killed two people and injured over 300 more at the border fence.

    Thousands of Palestinians once again descended on the Israeli-Gazan border on Friday for the latest showdown with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). The Israeli forces responded with live fire as rioters hurled rocks and Molotov cocktails and also sent incendiary balloons across the fence which sparked at least 15 fires in Israel, the Times of Israel reports.

    The protesters also managed to take down an Israeli surveillance drone that was trying to map out their location and movements. An online video, yet to be verified, showed a small UAV being taken down by what appears to be a slingshot. Previously, the Israeli forces used drones to drop tear gas on Palestinians at the border.

  • “In 2001, Dr. Ariella Oppenheim, of Hebrew University, a biologist, published the first extensive study of DNA and the origin of the Jews. Her research found that virtually all the Jews came from Khazar blood. Not only that but Oppenheim discovered that the Palestinians—the very people whom the Jews had been persecuting and ejecting from Israel’s land since 1948—had more Israelite blood than did the Jews. In sum, the vast majority of the Jews were not Jews; some of the Palestinians were. Some of the Palestinians even had a DNA chromosome which established that they were “Cohens”—workers at the ancient Temple and synagogues of the Jews.” – Quote

Divide & Conquer? What’s Really Behind Trump’s Hostility to the EU and NATO?

Click on image for article.

  • Divide & Conquer? What’s Really Behind Trump’s Hostility to the EU and NATO?
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    On the eve of the NATO summit, President Trump has gone on the offensive, demanding that America’s European allies pay more for defense while considering a pullout of US troops from Germany, and asking point blank why Paris doesn’t leave the EU. But what are Trump’s objectives? Does he really seek an end to the Transatlantic partnership?

    Donald Trump sent NATO members’ leaders letters urging them to pay up and commit to the NATO pledge to spend 2% of GDP on defense. “[It’s] increasingly difficult to justify to American citizens why some countries do not share NATO’s collective security,” the letters said, according to Foreign Policy. “I, therefore, expect to see a strong recommitment by [country name] to meet the goals to which we all agreed,” the messages added.

    “Germany has to spend more money. Spain, France. It’s not fair what they’ve done to the United States,” Trump said of the letters, speaking to reporters on Friday.

    The sharply worded messages, coming just two weeks ahead of the NATO summit in Brussels on July 12, have prompted another round of panic among proponents of the Western alliance. Political observer and The Guardian contributor Martin Kettle suggested that Trump was “hellbent on destroying the NATO alliance,” adding that the US leader’s “increasing hostility shows he has little interest in the Transatlantic partnership.”

Rob Kirby: Pro-Dollar Forces vs. Anti-Dollar Forces

  • Fed Waterboarding Deutsche Bank – Rob Kirby
    by Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com (Early Sunday Release)
    Macroeconomic analyst Rob Kirby says there is a lot you are not seeing with all the bad news coming from Deutsche Bank (DB). You’ve seen DB stock hit all-time lows, the Fed downgrading them and flunking the bank on a recent stress test. Rob Kirby says it’s much worse than you think and explains, “Basically, it is the German regulator telling DB you are going to get out of this pool, then the Americans realizing how hostile the Germans have become to the criminal activity of the U.S. monetary complex. They basically said you are getting out of our pool?  Well, we’re going to waterboard you first, and we’re going to bring public shame upon you.”

    Is Kirby worried about DB going under? Kirby says, “I think Deutsche Bank could go under. It might very well deserve to go under, but will they be permitted to go under? In my view, there is no doubt what-so-ever that Morgan Stanley was insolvent in the 2008 and 2009 time frame. Their stock was at $5, and it looked like it was going to $0. They pulled out the stops and papered over the shortcomings at Morgan Stanley.” Kirby thinks European central bankers will do the same for DB.

    Kirby goes on to say, “What we are really seeing here . . . is a trade war that has been going on for quite some time. This is a frictional description I am giving characterizing the regulatory relationship between American regulatory interests and German regulatory interests.”

    Kirby cites the example of Germany building an engine plant in Russia in 2015 against the wishes of the U.S.  Kirby says, “The U.S. wanted to put Russia in an economic penalty box. . . . As the date approached for the VW engine plant opening in Russia, so did the rhetoric between the U.S. EPA and VW regarding emissions on their diesel engines. They got a huge fine. . . . You could not have a closer measure of cause and reaction than this engine plant opening in Russia, and days later, this . . . very, very punitive fine on VW.”

    Kirby says what this all boils down to is pro-dollar dollar forces vs. anti-dollar forces. Kirby contends, “Three, four and five years ago, countries taking anti-dollar actions would have included only China, Russia and a few other smaller Asian players. Now, we are starting to see friction that is not just Asian players, now it’s Germany. Who’s next? Is it going to be the whole European Union . . . going to drift into the anti-dollar camp as well?  America is becoming isolated.”

Trump Wants to Break Up European Union: Journalist

  • Trump Wants to Break Up European Union: Journalist
    by http://www.presstv.com/
    US President Donald Trump is trying to divide the European Union in order to weaken the powerful economic bloc, says a journalist.

    “He wants to break up the European Union, because it is a competing trading bloc,” Tony Gosling, an investigative journalist, told Press TV on Saturday. According to Gosling, the United States has been involved in funding through the CIA “to get the EU stopped in the first place.”

    The Washington Post said on Friday the US commander in chief had urged his French counterpart to pull his country out of the European Union for better bilateral trade terms.

Trump’s Lawyer: Iran ‘Regime’ Will Collapse Soon, US to Impose More Sanctions

  • Trump’s Lawyer: Iran ‘Regime’ Will Collapse Soon, US to Impose More Sanctions
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani has claimed that economic “isolation” would ultimately lead to the demise of the Iranian government. Speaking at a rally held by the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) in Paris, the US President’s personal lawyer and ex-New York mayor Rudy Giuliani alleged that “we are now realistically being able to see an end to the regime in Iran.”

    “The mullahs must go, the ayatollah must go, and they must be replaced by a democratic government which Madam Rajavi represents. Freedom is right around the corner… Next year I want to have this convention in Tehran!” Giuliani noted. He warned of tighter sanctions against Iran, which Giuliani said would facilitate the ouster of the Iranian government.

    “When the greatest economic power stops doing business with you, then you collapse… and the sanctions will become greater, greater and greater,” he said.

    Additionally, Giuliani called for “a campaign to shame the European governments who are unwilling to support freedom and democracy.”

    “We need to insist that they join the [anti-Iranian] sanctions once again,” he said, urging a boycott of companies “that continually do business with this [Iranian] regime.”

EU Yet to Deliver Package of Proposals to Save JCPOA: Iran

  • EU Yet to Deliver Package of Proposals to Save JCPOA: Iran
    by http://www.presstv.com/
    Iran has dismissed media reports about having received a package of proposals from the European Union to save a multilateral nuclear agreement between Tehran and the P5+1 group of countries from which the US has withdrawn, saying the Europeans are holding their final discussions in this regard.

    Some media outlets have quoted European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini as saying that the EU has ratified a package to support the Iran nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), with 28 affirmative votes and has submitted it to Iranian officials.

    “Up until now, the European Union’s package of proposals has not been delivered to the Iranian side and the European Union countries are holding their final consultations to present their proposals,” Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said on Saturday.

    “Definitely, after receiving this package of proposals, the issue will be announced and assessment of its content will begin,” he added.

    US President Donald Trump announced on May 8 that Washington was walking away from the nuclear agreement, which was reached between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council – the United States, Britain, France, Russia and China – plus Germany in 2015. Trump also said he would reinstate US nuclear sanctions on Iran and impose “the highest level” of economic bans on the Islamic Republic.

    Under the JCPOA, Iran undertook to put limits on its nuclear program in exchange for the removal of nuclear-related sanctions imposed against Tehran. Since the US president pulled Washington out of the historic nuclear deal, European countries have been scrambling to ensure that Iran gets enough economic benefits to persuade it to stay in the deal. The remaining parties have vowed to stay in the accord.

Switzerland Chooses Gold Bullion Over Paper Wealth Backed by US Dollar

  • Switzerland Chooses Gold Bullion Over Paper Wealth Backed by US Dollar
    by https://www.rt.com/
    Another country is betting on physical gold. Switzerland’s pension fund has boosted its investments in bullion, switching from the paper-backed securities in US dollars.

    “The Swiss government Pension System decided to change from paper gold in the amount of 700 million CHF into physical gold and store it in Switzerland. The 700 million only stands for 2 percent of the total assets, but it is quite a surprise that they do this,”Claudio Grass, an independent precious metals advisor and Mises Ambassador told RT.com.

    According to Grass, it is a strong signal that people should take seriously, since a pension fund is an investment vehicle that has a long-term strategy.

    “Physical gold is the best way to hedge as well as to accumulate wealth over decades. If you would have purchased for $100,000 gold in mid 70ties the holding without doing anything would be worth more than $2 million,”
     the analyst said. Another factor why the pension fund demanded physical gold was that they understand that paper gold just represents a claim on gold in a highly paper-leveraged gold market, Grass explained.


    “It makes common sense under the actual circumstances to assure it is stored in the home country, Switzerland, instead of London or the US, which reminds me of the central bank repatriation,”
     the analyst added.
